Veggie Tips

Broccoli: Use the stem as well — all you need to do is peel it a bit.  The broccoli will store well in your refrigerator.

Cilantro: Chop it up and add it to your omelet or sprinkle it on top of your breakfast egg. Like many herbs, it carries many notable compounds that are known to have disease preventing and health-promoting properties. Freshly chopped, it can be added to salad or pasta dishes.  The cilantro will store well in a plastic bag in your refrigerator.

Fresh Onions: Each of these stems represents an onion plant before it has bulbed.  They are often a bit milder than dry onions, but definitely a great substitute in almost all cases.  Chop the onions up and use them at the beginning of any sauté. These will store well in your refrigerator.

Lettuce/Salad mix: Please use this earlier rather than later in the week!

Strawberries: We grow a variety called Chandler because it has a great flavor and sweetness unlike other varieties that have traded taste for yield, disease resistance and ease of shipping.  We pick our strawberries RIPE!  Please eat them soon after they arrive, or put them in your refrigerator. If some of them get soft, add them to a smoothie, or smush them onto your toast for instant strawberry jam!!!
